Patrick Head, one of the key figures of the Williams team during the golden years of the British team in the 1980’s and 90’s has returned to the squad in a consultancy role.
Drafted into the ailing outfit in a bid to understand how the once great squad have fallen so far down the Grand Prix field, Head has already commenced his duties with the outfit as the rebuilding begins back at Grove.
It is understood that Head will not be returning to the outfit in a full time capacity, having stepped away from Formula One at the end of 2011, but will rather be acting in a support and consultancy role for the short term as Williams look to steady the ship following Paddy Lowe departing the squad.
Confirmed by Williams to the official Formula One website, the currently last place squad confirmed “We can confirm that Sir Patrick Head is currently offering some support to our engineering team on a short-term consultancy basis”.
